The RWTH Aachen University Sports Center (HSZ) is again applying for the Active Campus Europe project with its international partners.


On February 5, the international partners of the HSZ gathered to formulate a joint application for the ACE project. Present were the leaders and staff of the various universities and respective sports institutions of University College Dublin, the Autonomous University of Barcelona, University of Technology Eindhoven, representatives of ENAS, the University of Vigo, University of Kaiserslautern, University of Wuppertal, Tampere University of Applied Sciences, University of Münster, RWTH Aachen University and Jörg Singelnstein, Representative of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia to the European Union.

Present was also ENAS president Mel Parker from Middlesex University London. Although the participation of the English partner is not certain, it provided the greatest possible support in the application process.

Professor Dr. Alexander Markschies, who participated in the meeting as delegate for university sports, highlighted in his welcoming address the great importance of university sports and his support in case of a successful application. Peter Lynen, head of the HSZ and host of the meeting, noted as well the great opportunity that such a project presented for the sports services of their respective universities and representatives.

The participants have seven weeks to formulate and submit an application.

In a sustainable cooperation with partner-universities from seven different EU countries, the Active Campus Europe project wishes to pursue the promotion of health-promoting physical activity within the university setting, whereby ACE should serve as an example for universities in Europe.
